Fave Guru Stories

File under: Reference Library

We came upon Our Favorite Guru Stories today, a collection of ex-devotee accounts of their experiences with Sai Baba, Sri Chinmoy, Swami Muktananada, Swami Chetanananda [Ed.note: Definitely not the Swami Chetanananda of the Vedanta Society of St. Louis.] and Guru Maharaji, aka Prem Rawat, who has been on a bit of a tear trying to rehabilitate his image lately.

I bet you just love this site. You tend to gravitate towards talking smack...

It's talking smack for a purpose. And yes, I do enjoy it.

Here's part of one of my favorite guru stories, about Sai Baba from ex-devotee Hans de Kreker:
He had earlier that trip asked me to kiss him on the cheek, while I was helping him getting something from a room adjacent to the interview room. This was a little room where he kept his gowns. It was his custom to give a gown to people for healing purposes (it was common believe that "hugging" a gown could cure a disease), or when they had opened one of his centres. He asked me to help him get something from that room. While leaning over to get something from a lower shelf in the closet, when rising he pointed at his cheek, indicating that he wanted me to kiss him. I did so, very surprised and kind of suspicious. I come from a country though where man and women irrespective of sex, kiss each other on the cheek three times. So after my first suspicion, relativised everything back to normal (I am still amazed today, how far ones mind can go!)

So back to that moment where he asked me to come closer. He then hugs me ( I am on my knees and he is seated on his chair-there are no people present). He now turns his face and puts his lips on mine; my head his spinning and my mind is running at 500 kilometres per hour. I don't know what to do! My mouth tightens up, and I feel extremely uncomfortable and confused with this "perceived incarnation of GOD on earth trying to kiss me on and in my mouth!! Sai Baba slaps me on my cheek and says "Loosen up!!! With other people not OK with Sai Baba OK " I am even more uncomfortable now and feel disgusted at the same time.

Sai Baba realised his and my predicament and decides not to continue. He now tells me again that he will give me everything and stands up and tells me to do padnamnamaskaar. As I go on my knees, and touch his feet with my forehead, he pulls up my arms and indicates he wants his calf muscles massaged. Although very uncomfortable with everything that had happened I still continued to listen to him. Many people knew how he liked having his calve muscles massaged and I had seen respectable men and women of all walks of life do the same thing....he now takes my head and pushes it quite firmly into his groin...he then pulls up my arms and asks me to go higher and higher and higher...NOW I AM HOLDING HIS BUTTOCKS AND WONDER WHAT THE HELL MY DIVINE MASTER IS ASKING ME TO DO!!! Fuse!!! Crash! I let go my arms and now I am even more shell shocked...he pulls up his dress, presents me his half-erect penis and invites me to take up my "Good Luck Chance":

"This is your Good Luck Chance"

I am now on my knees facing his erect penis, being asked to perform oral sex. He stands there, and I think:

AM I SUPPOSED TO DO THIS?

COULD I DO THIS?

The story of Hans de Kraker who was offered a good luck chance by Sathya Sai Baba may be your favorite guru story, but I want to repeat that some persons in this affair myself included needed years to recover from the shock.

I apologize that this could ever happen, he truly is not a master of any kind, regardless of what he thinks. The heavens cry when teachers cannot create safe boundries with their deciples. He has shamed the world...

this is disturbing. she shouldve realised or backed down way earlier. what was she expecting? express ticket to heaven? its upsetting to know that despite so much of information available around, some are still unable to differentiate obvious right from obvious wrong.
